(I didn't comment on your commiting a bumped empty changelog entry)

As proposed by our packaging guidelines:


"After each upload to the Debian FTP servers, the first commit should be creating a new changelog entry, to ease testing of unreleased packages."

  <http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia/DevelopPackaging>

Oh.

Do anyone (except you, now) really follow this changelog maintainance style?

Looks like an artifact from pre git days to me.

Do we really want that? I see no benefit. If we want to avoid unofficial package accidentally named like official ones, we should not only create a new changelog entry but also add a trailing ~unofficial to version number and perhaps also add a line "Local build." to the changelog entry. Else it will just clash with _next_ official package instead of the _previous_ one.
